Icicle Valley moved to my Qaxe Questorium mod in May, 2016. This stand-alone version is no longer supported

Questions about content from this mod may be directed to the above link.

ICICLE VALLEY provides hours of questing adventure, through new world-spaces, battling hordes of enemies with unique spells, in dozens of quests -- at times alongside a fully-voiced companion who absolutely wants to help you take it all. Download it. Play it. Enjoy yourself.

Icicle Valley is situated in the eastern mountains of Skyrim, due east of Ft. Greenwall. Locations are mostly contained within unique world spaces such as Icicle Valley, Ostrefjell, Frostbite Gorge, Th'gyrion, and the Red Road.

There are dozens of quests and adventures in this mod. Taking the castle and earning the title of Lord of Icicle Valley will open up more possibilities. As lord you may upgrade the castle, raise new banners, sell vacant houses, find ways to finance your city and expand your realm. Taking the neighboring Ft. Ostrefjell is also recommended, as this also opens up many more quest possibilities.

Old Book's OAK & IV Skyrim video page is awesome! Check it out!

LEVEL: Extreme at times. Tools provided in the standard game such as potions, stealth and Slow-Time are quite useful.

TOWNSFOLK: There are quest-givers and rich merchants. Most trainers and potential followers have quest requirements before offering services.

VOICES: Quest-related characters are generally voiced, but most townsfolk and enemies use generic Skyrim voices.

HOME PURCHASE: Not ready to take the castle just yet? Valley View is a player-home with upgrade options, located just inside the front gate up the stairs to the right. Read the brochure on the table for more info on how to purchase and furnish this home. Decide against buying? Tell Anders, and he'll sell it to someone else.

SPECIAL ITEMS: To balance rewards with the challenges presented, some of the weapon and armor enchantments are quite powerful. Individual players love or hate OP items, but you may use, sell or leave them. I just bake the cookies, don't complain if they aren't the type you like.

SPELLS: The 30 or so custom spells placed throughout the mod were meant to be fun, but also give the School of Spellcasting a unique flavor. Many were inspired by those found in the Morrowind game. In general, you do not have to learn these spells.

IMPORTANT: The README and UPDATES files have a lot of information about updates, troubleshooting info, etc. Also, I recommend using one of the popular mod managers if you are going to install the loose files version; BSA version if you want to manually install.

THANK YOU to OldBook for his ideas, advice, characters, videos and support.oices provided by Michael Butchin; OldBook; Anna Castiglioni, author of Anna NPCs; Jessica Osborne; Pandanami and Luna, gave this mod super-powers. Markus Liberty for permission to use Cyrodiil Ship and boat resource; Tutorials by DarkFox127, Mill3r Boy and Best In Slot were invaluable in getting me started. Cirena (Raven Castle) and Galdran (DIY Custom Banners) thank you for inspiring me to learn NifSkope. Of course, thank you to the creators of the Creation Kit, TESVedit, BSAUnpacker, NifSkope, and NexusMods.

BE AWARE: Our ideas on immersion, lore and normalcy probably aren't the same. Avoid complaining when you dislike things you get for free.

CRAVE MORE ADVENTURE? Qaxe Questorium puts all of my best mods into ONE plugin!

COMPATIBILITY: Provincial Courier users need V35 or greater. Forbidden City players use V37 or greater.

COMPLAINTS: I am happy to share my mods with you for free, and constructive criticism has played a strong role in helping me improve my mods. However, for better or worse, this is a service -- so keep nonconstructive complaints to yourself. You're smart enough to figure out how to use a computer, so you should know the difference between whining about something you got for free and offering ideas on how the mod might be improved.

PERMISSIONS: This mod was provided for you to play for free, but is the creative property of the author. The author does not give permission to post translations, edits, renditions, modifications, fixes, (etc.) of this mod to this or any other website(s).
